    Did you know there have been 351 mass shootings (4+ victims including shooter) in the United States in the first 334 days of 2015? The attached image is also very revealing...on average, 14.3 innocent people die in a shooting rampage when the shooter is stopped by the police...that numbers drops dramatically to “only” 2.3 dead people (still horrible) when the shooter is stopped by an armed citizen. Are you prepared to make a difference and save lives, including your own?

    Not sure why...simply go to the website 540tactical.com and look under concealed carry courses and select the multi state one for more details, maybe use a different browser as well...

    Well, two things...first, I am not interested in a senseless debate as this is not an editorial page. It is a promotional ad from a sponsor, Second MJ, is hardly a beacon of reality. Not much digging required to blow that whole article up...the math is the math. Additionally, violent crimes happen every 5-7 seconds in America...there are so many compelling reasons to become better trained and prepared for what is statistically likely to impact a person...I could pull a number of factual stats...or none...matters not. Either a person has an interest in learning or they do not.

    Yesterday, completed 540 Tactical CC for OR, AZ, UT.
    I did the range skills test afterwards.
    James and his sidekick Chris filled-in a lot of questions I had, and improved my draw and fire.
    The classroom portion began at 9am, wrapped up about 2:15. Shooting portion finished about 4:30? maybe 5pm.
    James packs a lot of information into his CC class.

    My third CC class.
    First one was 10 or so years ago to see what it was all about, didn't apply for a license.
    2nd class was after the 2012 Clackamas town center shooting, applied for and received license.
    3rd class was yesterday to fill-in knowledge gaps and learn more skills.

    Please tell me you guys aren't trusting that data. They do not use the same definition for mass shooting that the FBI does.
    I really hope I'm just missing some kind of joke here and there is seriously not an instructor teaching false information.

    It's not about how one piece of data is calculated versus another. It's not about how the FBI or Mother Jones calculates or defines a mass shooting. To the victims or intended victims of violent crime, which is several million people per year by EVERYONES data, it matters not.

    Violent crime, including mass shootings are real. They are intimate and victims don't tend to hide behind a keyboard and pontificate.

    Some people would like safe, effective and relevant training and this is an ad for such. If you don't like the ad, then simply move along.

    You're using hype to push a service.
    I hope you're honest with your students on exactly what that data represents. If not you're just contributing to the ignorance and rampant misinformation.

    You sent me a pm and set it so I couldn't respond. You don't want this public? Don't put it in public.
    You purposely misrepresent information to people looking to learn. You make money by extending the hype you know to be false.
    Shame on you.

    Other than baseless and ignorant assumptions and a propensity to lead with those, I am sure you have many fine qualities. You have a Merry Christmas...rejoice my friend as Jesus loves you...

    Where do I sign up for a class from these guys? I love it when people try to scare me into buying things that will keep me safe.

    I love it even more when a "company" comes onto a forum filled with gun owners and insults their intelligence with snark.

    Better yet, let me buy this for a family member so hopefully they can be treated the same way!

    And I'm sure you have fine qualities. Other than using incidents involving BB guns and calling it a shooting. You're aware not all of those "shootings" actually involved guns right?
    These numbers have been discussed at length on this very forum.
